We had a great time with our family (9 of us)! Ria was the instructor and between her sense of humor, her ability to teach and the music she chose, we had a blast. She and her partner made us all feel like we had accomplished something. Price can be a little high but definitely worth it, especially for a special occasion (birthday, out of town guests visiting, date night, friends from work). Highly recommended! Plus, having a bar available was an added bonus!

I normally don't like shopping, as I find it stressful, but I do enjoy coming here. It's a well-light mall with a lot of stores and is generally pretty busy, even in the shopping off-seasons. It doesn't have the rundown, derelict feeling that many malls have, now that so many stores are closing. There isn't a centralized food court, but there are some good restaurants, and there's plenty of parking.

It is always a fun day whenever we took the grandchild to This Museum. Not only are the animals usually at a height that children can easily view but the other exhibits are interactive and great fun. Kids can let off some steam in the playrooms where they can safely climb and go down slides. The science interactive exhiibit entices children to challenge their minds while having a great time.
